Off-Road: Queensland AORC round postponed due to rain

Rounds three and four of the 2010 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) will no longer be held this weekend due to heavy rainfall in the Conondale, Queensland, region.

A new date for the rounds will be decided and announced as soon as possible.

The Conondale event was being organised by Motorcycling Australia in conjunction with the Sunshine Coast Motorcycle Club.

Club spokesperson Rick Madden said the Green Park venue would have needed “at least three week’s sunshine” to dry out enough to run the event.

“It’s really unfortunate, but we’ve just had too much rain,” he said. “The property is saturated and it also doesn’t help that a creek divides the motocross track from the bush, which means we have to mark the tracks across the creek and it’s too high, it rose eight inches just today while we were out there.”

The Titan Enduro (rounds five and six of the Yamaha AORC) will go ahead as scheduled on 29-30 May at Moruya on the New South Wales South Coast.
